    Disney is closing in on a deal for the film rights to the 2005 Tony-winning musical, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich are producing through their production company, Rideback. Ryan Halprin, who appeared in a college production of the show and helped chase the rights, will serve as executive producer. A search for filmmakers for this project is getting underway.

    The musical is really great and I really like it, so I’m curious to see how this fits on the screen. I’ve disliked recent musical adaptations, so I’m not entirely hopeful but I’ll wait until cast announcements and a trailer.

    The only way I can really see myself being into it is if it were animated. I feel this type of musical could lend to an extremely charming and delightful animated film, especially with the right cast. Obviously, you have to get Broadway’s Josh Gad in the lead 😉

    I sort of wondered about this too. I feel like while the live action angle could end up with working out in some way, the idea of it being animated could give them a lot more wiggle room.

    I’ll be curious to see how this evolves. I loved the original production very much.
